For the first time in human history, the Web makes it possible for so much of the human knowledge to be available to so many. At the same time, natural language text, the very representation that facilitates this proliferation of knowledge sharing, acts as the main stumbling block for machines to make sense of this knowledge in a massive and unsupervised manner. This tutorial will review some of the ongoing work in addressing this challenge.
